Normally all of my previous visits to NYAJ have been excellent however this trip fell below standards. The visit started perfect as we were seated right on time and promptly greeted by our waiter. After ordering our drinks the problems began with the bar being out of ingredients for a Peach Sangria. Next up was under cooked chicken that was quickly replaced with chicken that was only slightly better. The other dish had steak cubes that tasted delicious but were impossible to chew as they were tough and fatty. All through this our waiter was on top of it and did his best to make up for the kitchen's shortcomings. I assured him that I knew it wasn't his fault and praised his efforts. The manager did come over and also apologized and offered to replace our food. I just felt at this point the meal wasn't worth it. As compensation the manager comped my meal. In summation, the service was excellent as was the manager's response but the bar and kitchen feel far short of what I had come to expect from NYAJ.

After being seated for 10 mins or so, one of the hosts came to our table and slammed the plates and silverware mumbled something under his breath then returned to the hostess stand. It was another 10 mins before a server came to the table. We asked for bread twice before finally receiving cold, hard and dry pieces, so requested another batch which was not much better. The lobster roll was good. Pizza margarita wasn’t hot-room temperature at best. Needless to say, I was very disappointed as We’ve dined here several times, but the last couple of times the level of service and quality of food seems to be going downhill.

The food was very disappointing, not just for myself but for the 5 others with me. Service was extremely slow and we spent way too long in there due to this. We kept receiving the wrong beer which is disappointing. Side note, it was every muggy and warm. Limited vegetarian options.

NYAJ is one of my local favorites. The food is delicious and I love how they have seasonal menus with different items. The staff is friendly, and this past visit our waitress was exceptional. Wanted to try the strawberry shortcake but we were too full, and even took some portions of our dinner home. Definitely good portions of good food.

We had planned to have our 7th anniversary dinner at 630pm. We ordered at 640 and still had not gotten our food by 745pm. We had another engagement at 8 and had to leave. The manager picked up an $18 tab, but was an unfortunate way to end dinner at a new place.

The mustard crusted chicken and the chicken parmigiana were our choices on the occasion—both excellent.

Good drinks and good food as always. A recent exception was in April. We came for dinner and I ordered the Chicken Piccata, a favorite of mine but this time it was not. It was definitely not what I expected from Joe’s. I should have said something but since it was not a usual occurrence I figured it was a one off.

Salads are great and they cheerfully accommodated my request for adds and changes to the menu offering.
We’d come just for the bread with oil, pepper flakes and Parmesan cheese but the inviting menu is the real attraction.

Servers should give guests more time to decide when to
Order. When the customers haven’t even picked up the menu, coming to you ask for your order within the first 15 minutes is too much. We had gotten our drinks and just wanted more time to talk. Let’s make this more of an experience for your customers and not about rushing them

Very disappointing. Wasn't too busy when we arrived, but service was slow. And then, with a party of four with three ordering soup, two arrived hot, and the third arrived lukewarm. When sent back, it returned, also lukewarm. When the manager came to apologize, she said I wouldn't be charged for it. No kidding! I certainly wasn't going to pay for it, nor give them a third opportunity to screw it up. Better management would have been more apologetic in some way, but that was the absolute minimum. It was neither appreciated, nor likely to provoke a return engagement. The entrees were acceptable. I wouldn't go back.

I love that NYAJ’s changes up their menu with the seasons. It makes you feel like you’re trying out a new restaurant all over again even though they manage to keep some favorites on the menu year round. The only bad part about the menu changes is when you start to like something new, it could be pulled from the menu by your next visit. That was the case with my recent visit. We were celebrating my birthday and for the past week or so, all I could think about was having that yummy salmon dish again but unfortunately, the meal is no longer on their menu. That’s not to say that I didn’t enjoy my meal because I can’t recall ever having a bad experience/meal at NYAJ’s. The shrimp scampi meal I ordered was very delicious and light considering pasta was included, but I really wish they’d bring back the pecan pesto salmon with the chipotle sweet potato mash.
